    Green Sense concrete

    Green Sense Concrete is an optimized mixture program in which recycled cementitious and non-cementitious materials are used in combination with specially formulated BASF admixtures. The result is an environmentally-friendly, cost-effective concrete that meets, and often exceeds, performance targets. The positive impact of using Green Sense Concrete on sustainability criteria is quantified by certified eco-efficiency analysis or life-cycle analyzer tool

    Why it’s a sustainable technology

    • Uses advanced mix optimization techniques to increase the amount of supplementary cementitious materials (ex. fly ash, slag cement)
    • Lowers energy demands, CO2 emissions and other environmental impacts per unit volume of concrete produced
    • Uses inert filler materials that may otherwise end up in landfills

    Benefits of Green Sense Concrete:

    Because Green Sense Concrete is optimized for cost and performance, many tangible benefits can be realized by the entire construction team.

    Producer

    • Optimized and economical concrete composition cost
    • Faster truck discharge
    • Desired setting time, slump retention, and strength performance
    • No water needed at jobsite – less performance issues / call backs due to water addition

    Contractor

    • Highly workable concrete
    • Good pumpability and finishing characteristics
    • Faster placement and production

    Owner

    • Desired durability performance
    • Lower shrinkage and cracking potential
    • Contributes toward sustainability credit schemes

    Environmental Agencies / Community

    • Less cement / CO2 / energy used per unit of concrete produced

    Less by-product materials targeted for landfill.
